Hadnt tried this place for years because of a bad experience but tonight we were pleasantly surprised. Actually sorry we had waited such a long time to go back again. Sat out on the porch,it was a beautiful night. Everything that our waitress Taylor recommended was awesome. Will definitely go back again soon.

We ate here for brunch (it happened to be Mother's Day). The food was okay--but the whole thing was waaaaaay overpriced. Not sure what it's like with their regular menu.

Very much enjoyed eating here on the porch with a view of the ocean on a nice September evening. The food was medium quality at a high price, but I figured we were paying a premium for such a pleasant location/experience. The service was very good.

Enjoyed having lunch here - sitting on the porch with a great view of the ocean. The food was good and the service was great --my waitress made me feel like I was having lunch at a friend's - very attentive and very friendly. Will definitely go back.

First time at Bia's and I thought it was good. Our server was very friendly and gave great recommendations off the menu. We had the calamari, crab and avocado dip and caprese salad as appetizers. Everything came out quickly and was tasty. For dinner I had the filet mignon, medium. The asparagus was good, the mashed potatoes were kinda bland... More

We held a wedding rehearsal dinner here and I could not have been more pleased. The staff is extremely accommodating both in planning and service during the event. They are all consummate professionals. The food was prepared and served perfectly. Our guests raved about the spring roll appetizers, bacon wrapped scallops, and tomato mozzarella with pesto dip. Thank you so... More

I have eaten diner twice here and lunch 3xs. Love the guacumole and crab dip, their burgers, and fried shrimp poboy sandwich. Don't remeber what I had for dinner there but remembered I was very pleased.

Nice place, a little over-priced for the whole of everything (setting, service, food, etc...). had the salmon dinner, very good, but my snow peas--or snap peas were somewhat raw. I had about a dozen on my plate and about half of them were un eatable. I like a little crisp, but these were raw, you would have to chew 20... More

We thought we'd try this place since we had not been there yet. We had the option of sitting outside but it was too hot. The hostess was unfriendly and implied that it was my problem, not theirs that the dining room was so cold. A cup of hot coffee did the trick but I had to keep my coat... More
